The 5th Annual Secret Bike Show!

Fall is approaching so its time for the Secret Bike Show again! This is usually a good local turn out. One last chance to hang with your buds before the snow flies again!

Brooklyn

Unreal bikes, Tom Fugle, free beer, and a great crowd of people; gotta say, even better than last year.

Cuban Matt

Got word that our AMCA pal and old iron revivalist, Matt, got into a little wreck on his pan.  Hopefully all is well and best of luck on recovery man, (for the pan as well!).

Gypsies

Here's some pics from the beginning of our trip, thanks to Mike!



My bike was hard to start, found out the voltage regulator wire snapped off the battery terminal at the gas sation.



The meet-up at Cool Beans, about to hit the the road!

Gypsy Run 5

Just got back today after an amazing weekend of Gypsy Run shredding.  The weather turned out to be awesome, no "major" breakdowns, and one of the best possible groups of people.  Here's a picture of us I stole off the Biltwell blog.  We met up with friends, made new ones, and had a blast.  More pics to come.

Hey

Someone's bitin' my style!  A similar build to mine, he even has the blue plate jewels.  Although his is a flatside shovel so he's got me there!  Looks like he has the same "too high" Crazy Frank problem too.  I'm thinking it might be because the Franks we have are earlier units that sat a little higher up.  Just my guess, judging from old pictures and whatnot.
These super low shocks Ken gave me pretty much did the trick in dropping my Frank a little lower.  When I had the stock height covered shocks on, the bike looked like it was ready to hit jumps.

Curious Franks

Here's a couple variations of Crazy Frank fenders that I found very interesting.  This one looks like it may be a modified original, or possibly even a one-off custom version.  Either way, it's really cool!
The white seat is awesome.
This one is wild.  I have no clue what those mounts would fit.  They have a real strange angle, and it looks like the top taillight mount was cut off and relocated right on the fender; eliminating the plate mount.  Again, this could even be a custom take on a classic.
This is someone's bike on the Jockey Journal, and it sports the elusive rigid Crazy Frank.  Subtle beauty, and I'm diggin' the backrest.
Here's a weld-on version for a rigid frame.
This is a prismic Frank that Justin from AZ found and for scored for dirt cheap, and sent me a picture of.  I've only seen 2 modern pictures of these (this one and mine), and a couple old magazine scans of them. 
Craze's Born Free Pan sporting a rigid Frank and leaf struts flat out rules.
Looks like a total custom job but it reminds me of a Frank.  The integration of the Master Craft light is so awesome.
